PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Some severe weather is passing through the region this evening, but whether you see any depends are where you are.
KDKA Chief Meteorologist Jeff Verszyla says tonight’s conditions will be muggy with clouds and scattered showers.
“You can see the clouds have thickened up across the area,” said Verszyla. “This is all just ahead of a weak front where clouds have been generated along with a scattering of showers and a few thunderstorms, kind of a broken line that is setting up shop, extending from northwestern Pa. back in through parts of northern Ohio.”
The weather prompted a Severe Thunderstorm Warning earlier this evening for Armstrong, Butler, Clarion, Forest, Lawrence, Mercer and Venango counties. It has since expired.
“As we head down through the rest of this evening, everyone’s going to be fair game to see showers or an isolated thunderstorm,” Verszyla said. “I think the main threat in any given spot will be for some heavier downpours. The secondary threat, in isolated spots, will be for gusty winds on the order or 40-45 miles an hour.”
Friday will also be warm and humid with a possible afternoon shower.
On Saturday, storms are expected to fire back up again in the late afternoon, bringing in cooler temperatures.
